Your Mission Brief
Not for the faint of heart, the Top Gun Experience is designed for those who want to get serious about their aerobatic thrills. YOU fly the plane through a complete aerobatic routine.
Twice as long as the Afterburner, the Top Gun experience is an interactive adventure of a lifetime. This profile includes many of the same maneuvers as an Afterburner, but this time, YOU fly the plane! That’s right, once our highly trained instructor pilots show you how to do a maneuver, it’s your turn at the controls. Don’t worry, no flight experience is necessary. There is an identical set of flight controls in the back, where our expert instructors sit, so they are there to help out in the event you need it.
You will be amazed at what you can do in these unbelievable airplanes after a small amount of training. Learn for yourself what it is like to fly a world class aerobatic aircraft as you pull back on the stick to execute a perfect loop. Watch the horizon spin at up to 420 degrees per second as you try out your first aileron roll. After the aerobatics, your ride is far from over!
Feel your stomach lurch, as you dive to the deck and experience firsthand what it is like to execute a dynamic low level profile through the beautiful mountains south of Las Vegas in a simulated bomb run on a ground target. Watch the desert fall away beneath you as you pop up for a 20 degree low angle pass on a simulated SA-5 missile site. Feel the satisfaction, knowing that you flew a perfect wire to get bombs on target. From there, enjoy the ride home as you come up initial and pitch out to land, having aced your very own Top Gun experience!

The staff and pilots are real professional, informative and give you everything you pay for. My friend and I went with the Top Gun package and we got the flight of our life!! Our pilots Diesel and Tex were awesome and gave us an experience in a plane that we will never forget. And thanks to the photographer and video guys we can show it off to our friends and family. Thank you Sky Combat Ace for an adrenaline rush that tops it all!!View more on Tripadvisor
This was an amazing experience. I can’t say enough good things about this fantastic trip. I booked the “Afterburner” for my husband on his 40th birthday. My husband, his cousin, and I, all went at the same time. They flew us side by side and we could watch each other take turns through the crazy maneuvers. The pilots were friendly, professional, experienced and really put me at ease.View more on Tripadvisor
My husband and I treated ourselves to a stunt-plane joyride prior to starting new jobs, and we do not regret it one bit! The staff and pilots were very helpful and knowledgeable. We felt like we were in good hands as we wheeled and soared through the air. We even got a video of the experience as a permanent memento of our day!View more on Tripadvisor
“BEST. DECISION. EVER.”
Best experience in Vegas and definitely one of the best experiences of my life. I flew with Diesel, who is a real crazy man in the air. Awesome time, awesome people, and awesome memories.View more on Tripadvisor
